The album continues Cardi's successive run of yearly releases. In the last two years, she released 2016's Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol. 1 and 2017's Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol. 2. Over the summer, the Bronx rapper embarked on a meteoric run, thanks to her history-making No. 1 single "Bodak Yellow." Since then, Cardi has been all over the place — from the Grammys and the charts to the cover of your favorite magazines and music festival lineups this summer.
Earlier this month, Cardi accepted the Best New Artist award at the 2018 iHeart Radio Awards, where she revealed an April release for her first studio album. She is set to appear on SNL as musical guest on April 7 and later this year, she'll join Bruno Mars for the final stretch of his 24K Magic tour.
